The Arts and Crafts Movement was one of the most influential, profound and far-reaching design movements of modern times. It began in Britain around 1880 and quickly spread across America and Europe
The joy of craftsmanship and the natural beauty of materials was the central philosophy.
All of the carpentry reflects the handmade quality and meticulous design found in the best British Arts and Crafts country houses of the period.
Much of the door hardware is either antique or reproduction. A significant portion is by Ball & Ball which produces antique reproduction hardware of the highest quality in a small plant in Exton PA. They have built their reputation by only producing items that are true reproductions. Using the 18th century craftsman as a guide they carefully recreate the expertise of that period.
All the taps and showers are polished nickel by Lefroy Brooks in the mechanical angularity of the Edwardian era (1901-1910) -beautifully made and still beautiful today. These are art forms – sculptures not only for the eye but also for the hand – they look right and feel right. Faucets and fittings are built from brass, hand assembled, impeccably hand finished and above all, eminently functional. The collection features exposed components and elegant white porcelain accents.
